Looks Like Rain – Lucienne Fontannaz

From: http://50watts.com/#2488515/Looks-Like-Rain

Les Perles de Pluie is a 1975 Quebecois children’s book by Eric Merinat (text) and Lucienne Fontannaz (illustrations). This gem of gentle, swirly psychedelia—surely influenced by Native American art and/or peyote—is one of my favorite finds from a summer road trip to Montreal and Quebec City.

I found a couple links for Swiss-Australian painter and illustrator Fontannaz: A slideshow of her gorgeous illustrations for a book of Swiss alpine legends, and a 2010 ABC-Australia radio segment about being bilingual. I haven’t yet seen her Willow Pattern Story book from 1981.
